I am an information systems management expert with over 10 years work experience in project management. I am the Chief Executive Officer of African Network Development on Sustainable Economic Activities (ANDSEA). Am looking for a network and platform which will give me the opportunity participate in comparative learning among practitioners and researchers working across different issues in different parts of the world. Most importantly apply the learning to build community, creating space for practitioners to come together to reflect on lessons learned and generate ideas for innovation.
